This morning we saw why we should love life. Tonight we'll see why we should love the good life. Look at verse 10 "For he that will love life, and see good days."
This is what most people today want-the good life. They want to love life and see good days.
That's what we say to each other "Have a good day." Our founding documents say that's our inalienable right-life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We want a happy life. We want the good life.
The problem is we look in the wrong places. Most people think they'll find the good life in cars, houses, money, clothes, drugs, alcohol, etc.
Solomon is an biblical example. We saw this in Ecclesiastes. Here's the man who has everything. 2 Chron. 9:4 says the Queen of Sheba had her breath taken away by all his wealth and power. But Solomon says in Eccles. 2:17 after all his pursuits of happiness, "Therefore I hated life."
How many people today really love life and see truly good days?
